Marshall Highlights POV Global Shutter Cameras With Genlock at NAB 2021
CV568 and CV368 Cameras Produce Crystal Clear Images in a Wide Variety of Pro AV Conditions
LAS VEGAS, SEPTEMBER 9, 2021 ̶ Marshall Electronics (Booth C5636) will showcase its miniature CV568 and compact CV368 Global Shutter Cameras with genlock at the 2021 NAB Show. These two new camera models are shipping now and are ideal for broadcast, sportscast, newscast, racing, eSports, remote production, or any application that requires high speed or low light capture.
The CV568 and CV368 POV camera models offer an impressive global shutter 1/1.8” sensor with 25 percent larger pixel size, for ultra-fast, low latency capture even in low light environments. Global shutter sensors are very useful in capturing fast paced action like onboard racing vehicles or capturing them as they speed by. This new line of global shutter cameras adds additional options for broadcast users when speed is part of the production dynamic.
The CV568 Miniature HD Camera is built into the same durable miniature sized body as other Marshall CV503 and CV506 cameras with rear panel protection, interchangeable M12 lenses, secure locking connections and remote adjust/match features. The CV368 Compact HD Camera follows the same body design as the CV344 and CV346 cameras with slightly larger CS mount lens type with a wide variety of variable and fixed lens options available. The similarity stops there as the CV568/CV368 models pack a much larger, more powerful global shutter sensor with genlock (signal-sync), producing crystal clear images at affordable price points.
“We are very excited to demo our global shutter cameras to the NAB community. While the sensor type is nothing new to the industry, we’re eager to add options within our range of miniature POV cameras,” says Tod Musgrave, Director of Cameras, Marshall Electronics. “Global shutter sensors perform better in higher speed environments as all pixels are exposed simultaneously. Rolling shutter sensors roll through the sensor array in sequence (usually top to bottom), which can cause warping or motion blur in fast paced action. This is not to say one is better than the other, each play a role and have a purpose in video production.”
The CV568 and CV368’s tri-level sync allows multiple cameras to be plugged into HD workflows already in sync (genlock), which enables seamless transitions between cameras with minimal amount of delay. Tri-level sync runs at higher frequency making the signal sync more accurate and more seamless.
“Marshall is committed to offering broadcast quality camera solutions in various form factors with features that matter to our professional users while maintaining affordable price points,” adds Musgrave. “These two new camera models are an excellent addition to the line, as we continue to expand our product portfolio. We look forward to sharing our latest innovations at this year’s NAB show.”
